1) Before you enlist (AFSC) ~14 min This counter recruitment piece was sent to us by the American Friends Service Committee. One of the tactics of the anti-war movement is to interrupt the supply fresh meat for the war grinder. This is an excellent tactic and is by every measure having a good effect. Besides stopping the war machine, anybody who we (in the largest sense of "we") can keep out of the military, is somebody who won't be ripped off by some slick-talking "promise-em-everything" recruiter, nor will they die, get wounded, suffer from PTSD, or the horror of having done bad things to innocent people. "Before You Enlist" is a good counter recruitment piece. Show it to your high school. http://www.afsc.org
2) PepperSpray report on the April 2006 immigrant march. A reprisal of last year's big march on April 10th. We included it to build for Mayday this year.
3) Si se Peude! (José Orozco) about 10 min - in Spanish. This is the first time we have had anything on the show that wasn't in English, or sub-titled for English speakers. But as the immigrant on our April 10th segment said, "We're here, we're not leaving, get used to it." So when somebody from the Spanish-speaking community gave us this video, to air as part of our effort to build for Mayday, we jumped at the chance to air it, in Spanish, just like we got it. Sometimes, you just have to practice what you preach.
Pepperspray Productions formed shortly after the WTO protests in Seattle, in response to the Independent Media Center's call, "don't hate the media, be the media". We believe that the Corporate Media is not telling us the whole story, and that the people must make our own media if we want our voices to be heard.
